How's everyone doing? I can't believe we're at the end of the month already!!
I am happy to report that I lost 3 of the 7 pounds I gained back. I'm hoping to reach my goal by the end of the year. 40lbs in 4 months. I'd really like to be able to fit into some nice fall outfits. Not that I can't fit, but you know what I mean. Skinny people clothes.
I have a EMG test in a couple of weeks that I am really nervous about. Basically, "A needle is inserted through the skin into the muscle. The electrical activity is detected by this needle (which serves as an electrode). The activity is displayed visually on an oscilloscope and may also be detected audibly with a speaker. Since skeletal muscles are often large, several needle electrodes may need to be placed at various locations to obtain an informative EMG. After placement of the electrode(s), the patient may be asked to contract the muscle (for example, to bend the leg)." I need it done on both arms/hands. Uh-huh. I'm super nervous. I have no one to go with me. My husband and kids will go "with" me, but wait in the car (since the kids can't be there...though they would prove to be a good distraction, lol!). I just hope I don't cry.
Hopefully all will be well and I can get on with going to the gym. I go now but just do the cycle. I'd like to add in some arm weights, but being unsure of weakness in arms/wrists from my "probable" carpal tunnel, I certainly don't want to pick up a weight or attempt at pulling/pushing one.
How's everyone else doing?
